The no-speaker led is on, and I have NDI how to shut that off.

Shot in the dark... When I first got my laptop I used the hardware button to turn off the built-in wireless since I didn't need it because I had wired access to all of the networks I needed to access. I then installed Linux completely wiping the Windoze installation. I soon came up with a reason to try to get wireless working and NOTHING I could do from Linux would turn the wireless card "on" nor was the hardware button functional under Linux. I was running FC4 RC3 so when FC4 came out I wiped the disk again, installed Windoze in a 10GB partition and then FC4 on the rest of the drive. Sure enough, Windoze control panel showed the wireless card as off and had a control to turn it on. It now works just fine and I have to boot to Windoze whenever there is a BIOS update anyway since that is the only way HP supports updates.

Any chance you could be running into something like this? Also, just to make sure and since you also mentioned a skype headset, my speakers only work when I don't have a external speaker or headphones plugged into the speaker jack.
